Xiaomi took the wraps off its selfie-centric Redmi Y3 about a week ago, with the phone’s first flash sale taking place on April 30. Those who might have not gotten a chance to buy the phone the first time around needn’t be disappointed as the phone maker has now announced the phone will go on sale every day. While this is still not an open sale, potential buyers will have a chance to get one of these handsets every day. Read on for more details about this offer.
Redmi Y3 Sale at 3PM Every Day
Xiaomi will be selling the Redmi Y3 every day via Mi.com, Amazon.in and its Mi Home stores. This campaign kicked off today, that is May 3, 2019, and is said to last until May 7, 2019. From what we were able to gather from today’s sale, Amazon only offered the smartphone to those with Prime subscriptions as part of its Prime Early Access deal. Over on Mi.com, however, users were able to directly purchase the Redmi Y3 by signing in with their Mi accounts. From tomorrow (May 4, 2019), Amazon will most certainly have the Redmi Y3 up for sale at 3 PM for all customers.

It is worth noting that neither of the two online stores had the Bold Red Color variant of the Redmi Y3 up for sale. Only the Prime Black and Elegant Blue color options seem to be up for grabs. Also, we saw only the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage option for sale today, while the 4+64GB model was not offered at all. With that said, Amazon has a banner for the next sale up on its site, and it happens to also mention the 4GB RAM model. So perhaps the latter will be up for grabs from tomorrow.
